Snow fungus (Tremella fuciformis) is a wild edible mushroom that grows on tree bark and branches, especially on broad-leaved trees, and is widely sought after for its health benefits, specifically those associated with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, as it contains compounds that research indicates may have numerous medicinal properties*:

  • Polysaccharides:
    • Improves skin hydration post UV exposure (reduces water and collagen losses)
    • Improves skin water retention (natural moisturiser and anti-wrinkle agent)
    • Control blood sugar levels
  • Fibre
  • Multivitamins and minerals
  • Anti-inflammatory compounds:
    • Lower pro-inflammatory markers in the body
  • Antioxidants:
    • Reduce free radicals
    • May lower heart disease risk
